World Class Channel Cat Fishing

Recommended Posts

  • 'we have more fun' FishingMN Creators

I am surprised that Wiskers, Dennis, Ed, Stu, Canuck, Brad, Dean or no one else has mentioned all the top cat guys who made it up to fish Channels out of Cat's on the Red in Lockport in the past week. Yes, the guys mentioned above are world class catfishing sticks in their own right,

Also, we're talking doubles-triples on 20+ Lb channel cats to keep you busy and providing forearm burns or bicep burns(Dennis) after multiple battles with big sumo cats that are full of attitude.

This is truly World Class Channel Cat Fishing!

Make your own trip to the Channel Cat fishing Mecca.

Talk to Stu at Cats on the Red and he might even set you up to fish with one of these premier Cat Fish guys mentioned above.

Hopefully we'll get some pics up here soon if Stu or Dennis can get some to me. I also have some footage that we hope to have made into a HotBiteFishing Show as soon as we can get Darin on it.

Those of you that haven't experianced this type of fishing are going to love this show.

Sorry I missed you Ed by 2 minutes and that I didn't get a chance to talk with you Brad and Canuck. Hopefully next time ehhh smile.gif

I'm also a little surprised a couple of the top Cat guys, Dennis and Wiskers didn't share their World Red River Catfishing Championship story. Just a teeny tiny bit surprised though. Deitz would understand though.

Thanks Stu, Dennis, and Wiskers for an awesome Channel Catfishing Trip!!!!! smile.gif

You guys Rock!

SHHHHH RICK!!! Not so loud. I want there to be enough room on the water for me and my dad when he flies up here in a few weeks to experience REAL cat fishing!!!

In all seriousness -- you ain't kiddin. I got my eyes opened to a world class fishery last year, and can't wait to get back. It's literally the only place I've gone fishing and gotten physically worn out from reeling in lots of BIG fish.

Man, I was just so worn out from catching all those beasts it took awhile to get back into the swing of things.

Yup. Thats where the serious cat guys go to play. Where else can you catch fish like that and the numbers.

Heck you don't have to be that serious, there are so many cats in that system anyone can catch them.

You had better bring some serious gear though. I was getting busted off with 50lb Power Pro.

My arms are still a little sore and I am a fairly strong dude.

It does look like Rick is looking for a little praise for beating out both Wiskers and myself in our little afternoon competition. wink.gif

Rick did do a fine job of catching more cats than two cat guides.

We had a little contest. The first guy to 5 cats won. That was Rick. It actually took a little time to catch up to him. I just blame it on tackle and gear malfunctions. grin.gif

Now that I am rested lets start talking rematch!

I'll get some pics as soon as I find the dang camera!!

I still haven't unpacked yet....I think my unconcious is telling me we need to go again!

Right on Dennis!! Its much easier to turn around and go again without unpacking & repacking, right? There is also less chance of forgetting something unless you forgot it the first time around! grin.gif

Our trip on June 3rd will be our 11th year going up to Selkirk. You'd think a guy would want to try to go fish somewhere else after that many trips. NOPE. We are so addicted that we just can't stay away. The fishing is great and we always enjoy staying at Stu's place. 3 or 4 days is our max, because we're too beat up to continue.

Glad you guys had a great trip up there! Anybody else going to be up there over the weekend of June 3rd?

Notice how Dennis can't bring himself to admit he lost the Race to 5 Red River Channel Cat World Championship.

He minimizes the World Championship and also adds excuses to his performance issues smile.gif

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
